Lorelei was on my top list but DH didn't like it. I think you should go for it!

I love Lorelei - and the nickname Rory. I'm guessing that the Gilmore Girls association will be gone by the time she starts school; whereas the Ariel/Little Mermaid link will probably be pretty strong for a long time... Francesca is pretty, too.

Francesca, then Lorilei, then Ariel. I like them all, actually.

I chose Lorelei, too. Lori could be a nickname, if you're set on those. (I'm not. Sadly, that's why I can't name my kid Catherine, b/c I'm afraid people would start calling her Cathy. Not that Cathy's a bad name, it's just not Catherine. I've gotta stop hi-jacking threads.)

reminds DH of *Roman Holiday*... I just happen to love it.

Lorelei is cute, but I don't know if passes my "name test." You know:

A) "Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States, [insert name here]."

B) "Ladies and gentlemen, the Sugar Shack is proud to present [insert name here]."

I have wanted to use the name Lorelei for the past 13 years ever since I was I heard the song and story in Germany. I am peeved to no end that the stupid TV show (which I've never seen but heard of) used that name. : They could ruin that name for me!

I love Ariel. It was the name of a girl I sort of knew in HS and I always thought it was a pretty name. Nobody teased her about little mermaid stuff or anything like that. Disney does not own the world... yet.
